LC The Workshirt

No. 4963




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).
Farm to Table.

1869, the Midwest United States.

A man would wear this shirt while wielding a grain cradle and flail to bring in the harvest. If it was just one man doing this he most likely owned a small farm, a few acres or so. If business was good he’d buy more land and hire more hands. Soon, doing things by hand, even with several more hands, wasn’t fast enough. Machines were needed.

A visit to town to see the bank would follow. The man would wear the same shirt. From the fields to the negotiating table. After this, other questions would arise, such as: soy beans or corn? Later, after it had been washed, his wife might have put this shirt on to dance around, making sure the children were asleep and the blinds were drawn. Only after this would the shirt be given time to rest, on the hook by the wash basin.

Today, the story is remarkably similar.
